Lara’s Levelbase Tribune
23rd March 2004 – 23rd March 2016
The Tribune started out as a monthly online newspaper 23rd March 2004 and was pursued as a blog since 15th October 2007. That means we look back at a dozen years of LLB Tribune history, twleve years of articles about the Tomb Raider universe.
Despite hoping persistently for some for new members to join the editorial team, to bring about a few guest entries, or to keep the blog project alive and going some other way, it became eerily quiet in the team and on the outside soon after the little revival in October 2014.
The New Tribune obviously hasn’t been able to attract readers for some time now. Maybe it would have been time for another transformation, switching to a new medium, or other kinds of entries, and we’ve simply missed the right moment a long time ago? Anyway, there is little use entertaining a medium of information if there is no proper circle of recipients. After twelve years of Tribune activity, however, a closedown without a decent farewell article would be unimaginable…
This time, the present image is presented to you early, for once. Lara Croft is on her way to a gathering that is held annually in her honour. If she manages to cross this trappy forest before June 4th, she might still be able to make it there in time! Wallpaper June 2015, 1920×1080 Calendar June 2015, 1920×1080 The Tomb Raider Meeting truly is a highlight every year. It constitutes an event for all those who play Tomb Raider or Tomb Raider custom levels, those who either like geocaching already or are inclined to give it a try, those who enjoy games, riddles and genial evenings and fancy spending three days in the company of like-minded people. There are still spaces available for this year’s meeting. So if you are interested, you will find further information here:
Have a wonderful June everyone!
It’s Valentine’s Day again and thus we also celebrate Lara Croft’s birthday. I wonder if her loyal butler Winston will find some valentine card among the mail, when sorting it by categories such as birthday cards, bills and letter bombs. With regard to her love life, Lara sure plays close to her chest…
Now it is January, and if you, like me, like keep in mind some key dates for the current year, then the Tomb Raider Meeting cannot be missing. But when will it take place? To answer this and other questions, the Orga-Meeting will shortly gather. Again in 2015, the Orga-Team welcomes all interested fans to join in the Open-Orga,
13. – 15. February 2015.
The number of beds available will be limited, compared to the meeting in the summer, so that it won’t result in a TR-Meeting-Spinoff. Thus, hurry anyone who would like to spend a few days in the beautiful Harz Mountains together with some lovely people.
Just like the TR-Meeting, the Orga-Meeting is supported by RollingBall. You may check in via the forum there (an account is required).
In the year 2014, eager members have again managed to create an Advent Calendar for the community. It is now for the eleventh time that you can let it surprise you for twenty four days and wonder what might be in each box. To me, the Calendar projects of the community, like those that have been established at Lara’s Levelbase, TRForge and AspideTR, are some of the events I keep looking forward to every year.
This year, a surprise of a special kind came into being backstage: All entries have been handed in on time! I believe that’s a first in all those years I participated in the Calendar workshop (first 2005). To that, a “Yay, us!”
Some of the authors and helpers of the Lara’s Levelbase Advent Calendar have been regularly present in the teams, some even since the initial Calendar of 2003. However, this “standing committee” warmly welcomes every new entrant. Anyway, I wanted to put a finer point on that, and so I did a little bit of research. What I came up with are details on the Calendars of 2014 and four of its predecessors:
Since August we could join Lara in extensive climbing, exploring and doing a lot of adventurous things in the former Khmer empire, and write reviews about it. Now the results of the Back to Basics 2014 have been announced!
The highest rating has been accomplished by the British Tombraider95 and his henceforth prize-winning custom level Submersion of Angkor. The two other champions of the builders’ competition are Bigfoot and Mman with their work Shambhala’s Pathfinder and Quest for the Soma. There has been keen competition at the 9th BtB, both quantitatively and qualitatively, what with an extraordinary average rating of 8,32 of 10 by the end of the contest.
